The property belongs to an English couple,Tim and Joanna(Jo)Weil who have been visiting St Lucia for the past 8 years. We fell in love with the island and after a very long search we finally found our dream home which we purchased in December 2009.

We look forward to being able to spend much more time in our beautiful home in St. Lucia but in the meantime we are making it available for holiday rentals when we are not there.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2009

We have visited St. Lucia for many years and love the island. We fell in love with the stunning view and the architecture of this property. We enjoy the variety of restaurants and beaches easily accessible from the property.

The property has one of the best sea views we have seen on the island. The sunset views are amazing. The property provides a restful, private location but good restaurants and a variety of activities are available within a ten minute drive.

Albatross Nest Exceeded Our Highest Expectations

Three couples found Albatross Nest on the VRBO site and booked it on the basis of the fabulous photos and reviews. These photos and reviews barely did Albatross Nest justice! The views are breathtaking. We spent seven days on the wraparound balcony viewing the ocean, ships, green mountainscapes, lush flowering plants, and stunning sunsets. It should be noted that the villa’s physical structure and furnishings are themselves fairly basic. The four bedrooms and bathrooms are acceptable, but not deluxe. But the majestic views are priceless. Michael keeps the property’s considerable gardens impeccable. The pool is gorgeous and leads to an edge with views of the ocean and Martinique. Potential renters should know that the road leading up to Albatross Nest is long and steep. It is a vigorous eight minute walk to the wonderful beach just below (and maybe twelve difficult minutes back up the steep incline). You will need a car or car service to get anywhere else. We enjoyed sailing, snorkeling, scuba, and zipline rain forest rides during the week despite thinking that our villa itself was the ocean paradise we most came to enjoy. The property manager, Kris Wagner, is highly professional and helpful. Simply the most beautiful place any of the six of us had ever stayed and we would be thrilled to return.

Team Albatross is Awesome!

We have traveled to over 30 countries and stayed at 4 and 5 star hotels along the way, and my husband can say without question that our stay at this house ranked #1. Views, English architecture, open air living room, gardening, pool, amenities are all awesome, but the team that supports this villa is amazing. There is Michael, the sweetest and proudest gardener I've ever met, who has spent 10 years caring for every flower on the property. There is Gildas, the security guard, as sweet and gentle natured as humans come, and a smile that lights up the room, and then there is Ivy, dear Ivy, who technically someone might call the housekeeper, but she is so much more. She is laughter, and fun, and caring, and eager to make you stop worrying about the day to day tasks. In short the team, are the best ambassadors for St. Lucia. And they made our stay feel like a true home, not a rental property. Oh, and there is a hammock--my, my did I love the hammock. My husband and I just celebrated our 17th year together with my sister and her husband who celebrated their 40th birthdays and we will back for future celebrations again and again. And one last thing, the value for the money is quite lopsided. We thought we got a very good bargain indeed.

Magnificent Views

I had occasion to look at this when I googled Albatross Nest recently.
This is the home our family conceived and built from the first bulldozer beginning in 1973.
Every facet of this property was considered with loving care. We sat many evenings on this site before the foundations were laid, watching the sunsets and orienting the view lines we wanted. If I could ever say it was spectacular then, it is then so and more now. While we designed the home around Mother Nature (originally around a cactus that sadly died eventually) it appears Mother Nature has embraced Albatross Nest in peaceful harmony. From the guestbook entries, our first nights watching those sunsets are still the highlights of any guest. It is so rewarding to see that the successor owners have honored and enhanced the very special and unique characteristics of Albatross Nest.

Owner's Response: We are extremely pleased to be the current custodians of this beautiful home which we have owned for just over four years. We really appreciate the wonderful design and situation of the property and we are determined to preserve its traditional, Caribbean style. We also love the stunning sunsets and we are really happy when guests love their stay at the house. It is wonderful to hear from the family of the original owners and thank you for sharing a little of the history.

Awesome place but...

We stayed at the Albatross Nest in October. All of our communications with Kris before arriving in St. Lucia were great. She was thorough, nice and helpful. I appreciate property managers who are well organized and attentive to their clients. The directions to the Vila were very accurate as well.

Once we arrived at the villa, we were amazed at the views. The views in reality are as great as the pictures on this website. I really loved waking up in the morning to a view of the ocean and the city below. Gildas and the other staff members did a great job. Gildas is a really great guy. Don't be afraid to talk to him!

I have a few comments about the condition of the place. While the view, the pool and the villa grounds are all 5 star, the furniture and the rooms are in need of updating and repair. For example, the cushions in the tv room and the mattresses all need to be replaced or restuffed. The bedrooms, especially the pink room, need to be renovated. The bathroom was awful and while it was cleaned every day there was a lot of old dirt in the bathroom. The shower curtain had mold growing on it and the tub and toilet are old and grimy. The kitchen could also benefit from some updating. The pool toys were dirty and some were even broken. It would be great if they had some floats to use in the pool so that you can lounge around in the pool and enjoy the view.

Also, please be aware that the house is not walking distance to anything. It is on the side of a steep hill and without a car you will need to pay for taxis or stay at the villa. We love to walk but given the hill and the narrow roads we found the roads to be unsafe.

We had a great time at the villa. I just think that with a little updating and new shower curtains, the place would be even better!

Owner's Response: We are really sorry that certain things were not up to standard during this stay. Kris, our on-site villa manager, as pointed out is extremely efficient. Unfortunately, there seems to have been an unusual failure of housekeeping to notice and report the things mentioned. We asked Kris to organise for the cushions/mattresses in the sitting room to be replaced and this has now been done. We have also upgraded some other furniture in the sitting room verandahs as part of our regular improvement programme. The pink and blue bathrooms have both been improved, and the shower curtains have been replaced in all the rooms.
The pool toys have all been thrown away - previous guests must have left these but unfortunately anything plastic fades/ cracks/breaks and looks dreadful alarmingly quickly in the sun and pool water, which is why we don't provide them.

We recommend that you hire a 4x4 car to make the most of your stay. Beaches, restaurants, golf course, tennis courts and Pigeon Island are all within 15 minutes.

We highly recommend a trip into the rainforest and zip-lining for the more adventurous or a tram ride into the forest if the zip-lining does not appeal.

A boat trip is the perfect way to see the island and it is possible to join others on a large boat or to hire something smaller. Boats trips leave from Rodney Bay Marina which is within 15 minutes. Trips vary in length and cost but we enjoy going down the west coast to The Pitons stopping off at Marigot Bay and snorkelling from the boat at various bays along the coast.

Nearer home on those days when you want to do more than relax by the pool we recommend a trip to Pigeon island, to look around and investigate the history, relax on the beach and perhaps to eat at the restaurant there.

Kris Wagner, the villa manager is able to help with sightseeing arrangements.
